The perl script recent_list which is used to grab recent entries
in parts of the web pages, e.g. News and security, has been modified
to look in the previous years list if there aren't enough entries in
the current year to fill the requested number of entries.
This should make the transition between years easier since the new
directories can be added as soon as the new year arrives and no
games need to be played with the wml files to make them list
the recent entries. The wml files still need to be changed to
use the current year. This won't be automated since they depend
on the creation of the new year directories.
